Apple CEO Tim Cook has been named best technology CEO in Barron’s Top CEOs list. The list is determined by a company’s performance and by a panel of reporters and editors.
Here’s what Barron’s has to say about Cook: Apple is the most highly valued company in the world, with a market cap of more than $2 trillion. Still, it is showing astonishing growth. March-quarter sales rose 54%—a nine-year record. Demand is soaring across its businesses, from iPhones, iMacs, and iPads to wearables and services.
Some of this reflects pandemic dynamics: PC demand has surged with the shift to a work-from-anywhere world, and the effects could linger even as the economy reopens. But credit also goes to CEO Tim Cook, 60, who will mark his 10th year as chief.
